Well now, here we are about to cut out 2006 and start a new year 2007. Much has happen over this year and I wounder what the New Year will bring. In September I plan on having Freedom Point up on the pad, and at the same time bring down Eternal Sea Point Lighthouse down for a refit after four years. The weather this year was hard on us out here and it shows on the lighthouse. I did a refit on Hood Canal Point lighthouse this year and its time too bring Eternal Sea up todate as well. So my plans or set to be a busy year. Want to wish all you folks a Happy New New Year and be safe in crossing over too 2007. :D "Boats"

Boats and everyone I wish you all a great New Year. Having an a Birthday Yesterday it really is a new year for me. It snowed a few inches here on the coast. I did not get to go to the ocean - the snow and cold being factors in part. My illness issues did not help much either.

I am looking forward to this coming up year.

So, to all of you I wish you much joy and caring and good health.

To my dear friend and brother person Peter who I think of everyday and miss I close with his quote "good friend mean good times".

Happy birthday Carole. our sone had one yesterday also. Let's hope 2007 will be a peaceful year and our boys and girls can come home from the middle east.

A friend of mine emailed a story the Boston Globe did the other day.

"A sardine will drop in Maine."

The story goes something this. The facts are correct but I have added my own opinions on the subject matter at hand or fin.

For second year in a row a sardine with be lowered from the Eastport Maine's Museum of Tides Institute & Museum of Art.

Last year's one was only 6 & 1/2 feet long and had a glittery ball in its mouth. In order to honor the Canadians who live less than a mile away they dropped a Maple Leaf at 11 pm because the Canadians are Atlantic time.

This year the sardine is bit bigger - 22 feet long - weighting 80 pounds and her name is Sally. I have wonder are they also putting a bigger ball in it's mouth. The organizers are hoping that no one get's decapitated by a sardine tonight. I and group of people almost got burned on fireworks on New Years Night in Hartford - the fireworks where set off to close to the crowd of people watching.

Getting back to the topic - No mention of if a bigger Maple Leaf will be dropped this year. I see the headlines now Death by Leaf.

Now just when you thought that crystal balls and sardines and maple leafs are the only things to be dropped. The list goes on.

In Brasstown NC a live opossum in cage is being dropped from the top of a county store. I am opposed to the opossum being dropped. Does anyone know of a good therapist for this opossum. It is going to need one after tonight.

Now in Lebanon PA we have a huge bologna being dropped it is 10 feet long and weights a 150 pounds. This marks the 10th anniversary of the bologna drop. Yes we do have bologna - we do have bologna tonight. Bologna sandwiches for everyone.

To close out I have heard a rumour that in Key West FL three drops will be made, something about a red high-heeled shoe with drag queen in it, a female pirate wench and a conch shell. Let me tell which of one these I think will attract the biggest crowd.
